CCWD meets February 12, 2014

   Calaveras County Water District (CCWD) holds their regular meeting on February 12, 2014 at 9 AM at their offices on Toma Court in San Andreas.

   We see one item on the agenda about drought preparedness, but nothing about a report on their meeting that caused so much controversy in San Andreas last week, where Congressman McClintock showed up; the politically spurred meeting that was supposedly NON-political.
